Save Abhishek Poral, none of the other youngsters measured up.
As it happened
While Mumbai Indians managed to open their account in the points table after three losses, the win helped them leapfrog both Royal Challengers Bengaluru and Delhi Capitals to seventh place while improving their NRR to -0.704.
For their part, a fourth loss in five matches saw Delhi Capitals slip to the bottom of the table and now have the worst NRR among all teams at -1.370.
Shepherd did most of the damage for Delhi Capitals, smashing four sixes and two fours off Enrich Nortje’s 20th over for 32 before returning with the ball to claim the prized scalp of David Warner (10).

Later in the game, Shepherd was also on the receiving end, conceding 54 runs in his four-over spell for Mumbai to finish off the most expensive of all bowlers.
A collective effort of four sixes and three fours topped Shepherd’s attack as Mumbai Indians registered their highest ever score at their home ground in the first half of the game.
As DC began their chase, Prithvi Shaw scored 66 off 40 balls with three sixes and eight fours but the asking rate was out of his reach.
No. 3 Poral played some attractive strokes but could not make the most of the lifeline he got while batting on 30 runs. Delhi captain Rishabh Pant (1).

Noortje’s final figures were 2 for 65 in 4 overs. Ishant Sharma, in all likelihood playing his last IPL edition, looks a pale shadow of his much older self, being taken for 40 runs in 3 overs. Most of the time he is faltering on the bowling mark and at times is not even able to finish his follow through. The momentum has slowed dangerously but DC has no choice but to play it up.
Shepard was the last to join the party but seems to have made the most of it after each one. Rohit Sharma (49 off 27 balls), Ishan Kishan (42 off 23 balls), Hardik Pandya (39 off 30 balls) and Tim David (45 not out off 21 balls, 2 fours, 4 sixes) also enjoyed the batting conditions.

However, it was a forgettable outing for Suryakumar Yadav, who was hit for a two-ball duck in his first game since mid-December last year.
But David’s sharp knock and Shepherd’s late fireworks ensured they still had a huge tomorrow.
Mumbai’s cause was also generally aided by Delhi’s fast bowlers during the innings, who kept feeding them balls in the zone to hit them or balls with width that the batsmen could take their chances from.
